How do you know this? How are you alerted to this other than it possibly not loading?

 

It works fine on my R8000?

 

Questions:

 

  1. Has it worked before with a different router?
  2. Does it work if connected directly to modem?
  3. Have you cleared the browser cache?
  4. Can you PING AOL.COM?
  5. Do you get an error code and if so, what is it?
  6. Have you tried a different browser?
  7. Are you using the AOL Desktop app, if so try a browser?
  8. Could you Fire Wall be doing this and not the router, try disabling it momentarily and see.

Tried a different browser?

 

Is that is what you are using.

 

Given how much information you have provided, who knows?

 

 

Just another user.

Re: router blocks AOL

AOL.com blocked in the keyword blocking? Check [Advaced] -> Security -> Block Sites
